The Sumter County Sheriffs Office successfully implemented a cybersex sting operation earlier this year called STARCOP that resulted in the arrest of 22 suspects on charges related to attempting to meet children through the Internet for sex. We considered the operation a great success, said Sumter sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. I think that the arrests highlight the potential danger that minors face while using the Internet. Because of the success of STARCOP the sheriffs office is planning similar operations. In addition to our efforts to highlight the dangers that minors face on the Internet, there needs to be an enforcement presence on the Internet, he said. As evidenced by its recent successes across the state to target online sexual predators the Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative uses best practices, collaboration, and education in an effort to keep Floridas children safe. In The Sumter County Sheriffs Office successfully implemented a cybersex sting operation earlier this year called STARCOP that resulted in the arrest of 22 suspects. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Adam Whitman Whitman sings at Pentagon Top officers from the United States bowed their heads in memory and honor, the crowd waited silently as the Sept. 11 ceremony of remembrance took place at the United States Pentagon. The United States Navy Sea Chanters began a moving rendition of Amazing Grace. Thats when family and friends recognized the voice the clear tenor of Adam Whitman as he performed the lead solo in the song. Whitman joined the Sea Chanters in 2009. Growing up in Webster, he was a 2003 graduate of South Sumter High School and class valedictorian. Whitmans mother Lisa works in personnel at the Sumter County School Board. When asked to share how she felt about the fact that her son performed at the 9/11 service, she said, Im going to start crying. Her voice began to break B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Honored as a local hero Tonya Mullan has been a driver for Sumter County Transit for the past five years. This year she was honored for saving two lives in Sumter County and named the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year. The state agency provided more than 51 million trips last year and employs thousands of drivers. County bus driver honored for assistance Police officers and firefighters are touted as heroes as they face the bad guys and run into burning buildings. But not all heroes hire on for emergency rescue. Consider Tonya Mullan a four-year driver for Sumter County Transit, loves her job. I love driving, meeting new people and I love helping them, she said. And because of her dedication to her job and love of helping others, Mullan is a hero, saving two lives last year. The first incident occurred during the colder months. Mullan said she arrived at the home of one client to pick her up and take her to a doctors appointment. The Villages resident headed down her sidewalk as Mullan opened the van door and began writing down mileage for the trip. Thats when Mullan heard a call for help. She had slipped on the sidewalk on the ice, Mullan said. The passenger decided she just wanted to go home but Mullan was concerned, noting the resident had a large bump on her head. Not comfortable with allowing the woman to return home without being checked over, I insisted on her going somewhere, Mullan said, adding that she took her to urgent care. They flew her out. They said she probably would have died. After a while, when you drive, you know peoples routines, she said. Its that knowledge that helped in saving a second client. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesJillian Furlong kisses the hand of playmate Bailey Poe as they cuddle up in Jillians moms lap. Baileys mom Emily Poe took part in the competition and placed third. She will be in the final contest in October. Talent reigns at competition The rain came down, but that didnt stop contestants or the audience in the third round of Lickety Splits karaoke competition last Friday night. Dozens of people settled in lawn chairs beneath pop-up tents, under the outdoor sheds and beneath umbrellas to listen as top talents crooned their way to the top spots outside the Bushnell ice cream shop. First-place winner Allen Clemmitt wowed the audience and wooed the ladies with his rendition of Mrs. Jones kneeling before some of the women as he sang the romantic tune. Second place went to John Hindman and third to Emily Poe. The three will be in the finalist round in October and are in the running for the $1,000 cash prize. The song competition drew couples, families and friends, all volleying between the ice cream shop for sandwiches, ice cream and drinks and the outdoor show for entertainment. Once the contest was over, Mad Cow Music opened the dance floor and closed the evening with a few songs and open karaoke. The final karaoke round is slated for Saturday, Sept. 24 starting at 6 p.m. See SING Page 2 See HERO Page 2 See STING Page 2 B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer See TALENT Page 5

as she continued, because hes serving his country and hes serving his God. Whitman shared his thoughts of the performance. Of course it was a great honor to sing for the 9/11 Pentagon remembrance ceremony, but it didnt hit me until the moment of silence before the song began, he said. I was not meant to be the shining star. I was meant to be a leader in a worshipful and reverent moment, to honor those whose lives were taken on that tragic day. Mrs. Whitman said they didnt know the Sea Chanters would be singing until Thursday. She said details were sketchy and security was pretty tight. As for the solo part, they didnt know about that until they actually saw it. They werent even sure it was going to be televised, much less the entire song. The Whitmans attend the St. Cloud church where Mrs. Whitmans father preaches. It was during church that her sister contacted her and she learned that Adam had a solo part. Once it aired, lots of friends and family began contacting them. After his South Sumter High graduation, Whitman went on attend to Florida State University where he worked toward dual majors education and music. I tried to convince him to be an accountant, Mrs. Whitman said with a laugh, adding that she asked him What are you going to do in music? Amazing. He knew where he was heading after his first year at FSU. She said he told her, I cant do it. I cant be an accountant, I love music too much. When he started at the college, it was in band, playing trombone with the Marching Chiefs. Then he tried out as vocalist and was accepted. After graduation from FSU, he taught in Orlando for a few weeks, but economic cutbacks took that job. Whitman was among the last in and the first out. It ended up being a God thing, she said. He emailed his professor at the university, who then urged him to tryout for the United States Navy Sea Chanters. They sent CDs and followed the process he had to eventually go to Washington, D.C. for an audition, was accepted and went through boot camp. Hes a member of a presidential support unit based in the Washington, D.C. area. A petty officer, Whitmans honors include a 2007 first place in the National Teachers Association of Singing regional competition. He was a featured soloist in choirs under the direction of Kevin Fenton and Andre Thomas and a charter member of the Festival Singers of Florida under the direction of Kevin Fenton. He was also a member of the internationally known collegiate a capella group, AllNight Yahtzee. The Sea Chanters perform a variety of music, from various periods and often perform as part of the nations most important events. P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 15, 2011 the past 11 months, 177 persons have been arrested from sting operations conducted across several Florida counties. Florida Sheriffs Association is dedicated to keeping children safe from the dangers that are lurking online with this collaborative effort which shares resources to combat the epidemic of online sexual exploitation of children. Combined resources from sheriffs offices, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Florida Attorney General, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) taskforce, and many Florida school superintendents have provided support and education for this initiative. To date, the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative, through the sheriffs offices school resource officers and Attorney Generals Cyber Crime Unit team, have educated more than 214,000 children about staying safe on the streets and on the Internet. One such example, a cybersafety program started by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office launched in Oct. 2010, has already worked with 104,516 students in elementary, middle and high schools across 25 counties in Florida. FSA leaders say that educating children is critical to helping them combat the sexual predators who are attempting to lure kids through Internet chat rooms. Leading the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative is Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, who launched the first operation in October 2010. Operation Grim Reaper netted 22 arrests after 700 hours of logged chat time online. This is the crime you never see, this is the crime you never hear of, said Dawsy, and we are declaring war on this epidemic. The Florida Sheriffs Association Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative is going on the road and it will be coming to a town near you. FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative successes also include the following operations: Citrus County, an additional 18 arrested in Operation Cyber Guardian Lake County, 32 arrested in Operation Summer Nights Polk County, 22 arrested in Operation Last House Call St. Johns County, 17 arrested in Operation Sheepdog Volusia County, 15 arrested and 14 leads are still under investigation in Operation Cyber Sting. Sheriff Ben Johnson of Volusia County, president of the Florida Sheriffs Association, is pleased to offer this cyber sexual predator toolkit to other agencies. Johnson explained, We are sharing the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative to provide real resources to other agencies, including step-by-step instructions on developing chat room personnel, conducting undercover operations, drafting search warrants, and selecting the location that will aid in the successful prosecution of those preying on our youths. Dawsy and Sheriff Judd (Polk County), as well as the other sheriffs and their staff who took part in this initiative, are available to assist in sharing this template with other law enforcement agencies to implement in their own areas.

STING continued from Page 1 For tips on how to keep kids safe see the Florida Sheriffs Association Child Safety Page at www.flsheriffs.org/child-safety. SING continued from Page 1 I was taking her to the doctor and I always go and knock on the door because shes on a walker. I heard something when I was knocking, she said, adding that it was very faint. Never receiving an answer, Mullan contacted her dispatch office and had them call 911. When emergency rescue personnel got inside, they found the elderly woman on the floor in her bathroom, where she had fallen the night before. She was in pretty bad shape, Mullan said. With a broken hip, the resident was taken to the hospital for treatment. Not only did Mullan remain persistent and get her the help she needed, she took time out to go to the hospital for a visit. Im just blessed that I was able to help them. Mullan said her life is plain and simple. She and her husband Jimmy have been married for 24 years and have lived in Sumter County for five years now. I used to drive a school bus in Polk County. I love driving, she said. The mother of three also takes pride in the success of her grown children. Her oldest son, Kirt, is in the military and has served two tours in Iraq; daughter Tabitha is in nursing and youngest son, Jeffrey, is also joining the military. A woman who said her life is plain and simple, is credited with helping save two lives and being named the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year. The state agency provided more than 51 million trips last year and employs thousands of drivers. Its really quite prestigious to be honored, said Mullans boss and Sumter transit director Dave Levesque. It makes for one very, very proud transit manager, Levesque said of Mullans effort. Ive been in this business since 1993, both here and in New Jersey, medical and non-medical, he said. Ive never worked with a group of drivers like this. They really, really, really care about the passengers, he said. I dont know who is more proud While Mullan is thrilled with the honor, she said shes just happy that she was able to make a little bit of a difference in the lives of others. HERO continued from Page 1 Mullan received the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year award. Mother of three grown children, she feels she lives a simple life and is simply glad to help others. Mullan is shown here with her boss Dave Levesque just outside the award ceremony, held earlier this year on the east coast. 680 E.

Sumter County Sheriffs detectives arrested Lindsay J. Cunningham, 27, of Webster charging her with Criminal Use of Personal Identification Information. On Sept. 2, sheriffs detectives began investigating fraudulent ATM withdrawals from the victims bank account without their knowledge or consent. The victim is an unidentified elderly person who Cunningham had befriended. During an interview, Cunningham admitted to detectives to removing the victims ATM card and PIN number and using them to make the withdrawals. Cunningham was arrested and taken to the Sumter County Detention Center in lieu of a $2,000 dollar bond. To help protect you against identity theft, Sheriff Farmer offers the following tips: To minimize the amount of information a thief can steal, do not carry extra credit cards, your Social Security card, birth certificate or passport in your wallet or purse, except when needed. You can limit the number of pre-approved offers of credit that you receive in the mail by removing your name from the marketing lists of the three credit reporting bureaus. These pre-approved offers usually are discarded in the trash. Shred charge receipts, bank statements, credit applications and other forms that contain personal information before discarding. When ordering new checks, dont have them sent to your home. Pick them up at the bank instead. When you pay bills, do not leave the envelopes containing your checks at your homes mailbox for the postal carrier to pick up. If stolen, your checks can be altered and then cashed. If stolen, credit card payments contain all the necessary information an identity thief needs. Its best to mail bills and other sensitive items at the post office rather than from your residence or neighborhood drop boxes. Never give out your credit card number or other personal information over the telephone unless you have a trusted business relationship with the company and you have initiated the call. Always take credit card and ATM receipts with you. Never toss then in a public trash container. Watch the mail when you are expecting a new credit card that you have applied for or a re-issued card that has expired. Immediately contact the issuer if the credit card does not arrive. When creating passwords and PINs, do not use the last four digits of your Social Security number, your birth date, middle name, mothers maiden name, address, consecutive numbers or anything else that could be discovered easily by thieves. Memorize all of your passwords and PINs. Dont record them on anything in your wallet or purse. Shield your hand when using your PIN at a bank ATM or when making long distance phone calls with your phone card. Carefully review your credit card statements and phone bills for any unauthorized charges or fraudulent use. Sumter County Sheriffs detectives arrested Clayton L. Lloyd, 34, of Wildwood charging him with Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements.

Lloyd Arrested man claims he was seeking gas money A Center Hill man reportedly told deputies he broke into a house last week because he was trying to borrow money for gas. Deputies werent convinced and ended up arresting Kevin Antoine James, 45, on Tuesday, Sept. 6, for burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest with violence. James was found inside a residence on State Street at 11:09 a.m. after someone called the sheriffs office saying there was a burglary in progress, according to a sheriffs office report. As deputies went to the front door to investigate, they saw it was open about two inches, the report states. When officers attempted to enter, the suspect tried to keep the door closed. Deputy Andy Shepherd grabbed the door handle and pushed the door twice using his shoulder, according to the report. On his third attempt, he was able to push the door open with enough force to knock the suspect back. The deputy then attempted to arrest James who resisted the officer before finally being placed to the ground and handcuffed. The deputy found a white cotton bag with two wrist watches inside that James had reportedly attempted to conceal under a couch. The watches were valued at $210. James told the deputy he ran out of gas and came to the residence to borrow money, according to the report. James said when he didnt get an answer he entered through a window looking for change. The watches were taken when James couldnt find any money. James was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $18,000. He was additionally wanted on a Sumter County warrant for an order of commitment for not having a valid drivers license. He was ordered to serve 29 days.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 15, 2011 Sheriffs actions are a positive step T he Florida Sheriffs Association is leading a statewide effort to fight Internet crimes that target children and the association is offering its information and techniques to other law enforcement agencies throughout the state that want to join the effort The associations actions to target sexual predators who find their victims through Internet conversations is showing very positive results that hopefully will curb this type of intolerable crime. The Sumter County Sheriffs Office has helped lead the state effort in arresting sexual predators who try to prey on local children. Earlier this year, 22 suspects were arrested when sheriffs department officers set up STARCOP to apprehend sexual predators as they attempted to set up meetings with what they thought were underage children. But instead of children, they ended up meeting law enforcement officers who arrested the suspects. Some people were surprised that so many people were arrested during Sumters operation. Sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker said he estimated that the department would end up arresting 21 people but others in the department expected lower numbers. Because of Sumters success, other similar operations are being planned. With Sumter arresting 22 people and similar arrests made in other counties, the Florida Sheriffs Association has made a wise choice to share its techniques and information with other law enforcement agencies. There is no doubt that the Internet is a very valuable tool, but along with that comes so very dangerous territory for youngsters. Parents and guardians need to look at the amount of arrests in these types of law enforcement operations and be aware that the Internet can also be used as an effective means for sexual predators to lure in their young victims. T he Sumter County Chamber of Commerces newest event offers a sampling of area delicacies and a chance to help local students pay for college.

Drowsy driving can have fatal consequences Y ou fight to keep your eyes opened, your head up. You have stopped for coffee because you just have to get to your destination as soon as possible. Then before you have time to react, you are wide-awake enough to see oncoming traffic, since youll have veered into it! All too often this scenario is real on Floridas roadways. To prevent crashes caused by driver fatigue and save lives, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Transportation are teaming up with lawmakers and safety advocates during Floridas Drowsy Driving Prevention Week on Sept. 5 through 9. State Rep. Alan Williams, District 8, sponsored the legislation that created the Ronshay Dugans Act in 2010, which designates the first week of September as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. Ronshay lost her life after a driver crashed into the bus that she was riding, said Representative Williams. Her family shares their story about their loss so other families might be spared this tragedy. Drowsy driving can be eliminated with simple planning and a conscious decision to pull over when you know you are tired. We want everyone traveling Florida roads to arrive safely at their destinations. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that each year driver fatigue results in 100,000 policereported crashes, 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. However, the full impact that sleepy drivers have is unknown because crashes caused by driver fatigue are under-reported as they often rely on a driver to self-report. According to NHTSA, drivers in the following three groups pose the highest risk of falling asleep while driving. Young people (ages 16 to 29), especially males Shift workers whose sleep is disrupted by working at night or working long or irregular hours People with untreated sleep apnea syndrome and narcolepsy Regardless of a drivers vocation, age, sex, health condition or other characteristics, any driver can become overconfident and fall victim to drowsy driving. Measures that drivers can take to stay alert behind the steering wheel are: Catch some Zs. A good nights sleep goes a long way to prevent drowsy driving. Most adults need seven to nine hours, and most teenagers need 8.5 to 9.5 hours to maintain proper alertness during the day. Bring a buddy. By having another driver on board, you have someone to share the driving responsibilities and help keep one another alert. Take a break. Stopping to get out and stretch your legs every few hours or even to catch a quick nap will help you recharge your battery. Drive sober. Alcohol and driving never mix. Also, heed prescription medication labels and any warnings that say they may make you drowsy. Fatigue and drowsiness can impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely, which not only puts you and your passengers in danger, but also it places everyone else on the road with you at risk.

Lake Panasoffkee residents lost their home Monday to what authorities believe was an accidental fire. It took firefighters about 15 minutes to get the fire out. A Lake Panasoffkee home was destroyed by fire Monday afternoon, according to Leland Greek, fire services division director. Sumter County Fire and EMS responded to a report of a structure fire at 3437 C.R. 341. When the first engine arrived on scene, crew members found that more than 30 percent of the house was involved. They also learned there were several oxygen tanks inside. According to Greek, the oxygen did not cause a problem and firefighters were able to quickly knock down the fire within approximately 15 minutes. Three engines and two tankers responded to the blaze. The homeowner was taken to the hospital for treatment of medical issues. Greek said the investigation is ongoing, however it does appear that the fire was accidental. No other information was available at press time. Blaze destroys Panasoffkee home Fire Services Director Leland Greek said the investigation is ongoing, however it does appear that the fire was accidental. Monday afternoon fireGrace notes Disappointment with God A few months ago, I got a letter from someone Ill call Emily. She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously. Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it. She wants to help him, but he doesnt want her help. So not only does she feel helpless, but shes beginning to feel hopeless because God is silent. His silence she interprets as his disinterest. Thats the source of her real pain. Ive tried to be close and lean on him, but it always leads to disappointment, she wrote. Not depending on God is better for me because then he doesnt let me down. Im not one of those fired up for Jesus Christians, but Ive always wanted to be I could really use some encouragement. I wrote her back, saying, I know exactly what you mean by not being a fired up for Jesus Christian, because Im not one either. I told Emily that disappointment with God comes from expecting him to do things the way we want him to, and sometimes he does. Mostly, though, he doesnt. (But ultimately, he does things better.) Recently, I polled some people on Facebook, asking if they had ever shaken their fist at God in anger and frustration. One woman replied that after her father worked hard all his life, shortly after he retired he had a massive stroke and ended up hooked up to machines until he finally died days later. The mans daughter said she remembers screaming in her back yard, How can you do that to Daddy? What kind of a God are you? Youre cruel and heartless and Im never going to believe in you or serve you again! Almost 30 years later, this woman has since watched her mother, husband and brother die from long, lingering illnesses and said, Looking back, I realize that God was very kind to my father (and to my mother because Daddy was not long on patience and would have been a terrible patient for my mother to have to care for!). Being an invalid would have been hell on earth for Daddy. So, Gods timing is always perfect, even though we might not think so at the time. Another woman said its not so much fist-shaking anymore as it is still holding a bit of a grudge with God ever since her brothers best friend committed suicide years ago. My fist-shaking is twofold, she said. One, of course, was why did God take him from us and why did it happen that way? More than that, however, Nancy Kennedy Special to the Times See GRACE Page 11

P AGE 8S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 15, 2011 If you see the little engine at the Wildwood Shopping Center, you dont want to pass it up. This little engine is a sign that lunch is on and flavors a guarantee as members of the Wildwood Athletic Club host their quarterly barbecue fundraisers. For the past three years, the club has been working barbecues and several other events to help fund sports needs at Wildwood Middle High School. Slow cooked by club vice president Roger Phillips in his custom-built Seaboard Railroad Air Line engine, its barbecue that will melt in your mouth, with a sauce thats all flavor. Member Lynette Fort makes the sauce. As proof, club president and founder Lester Lucas said they made enough for 400 sandwiches recently thinking theyd have enough for the game that night too. They sold out at lunch. They make the barbecue three to four times a year now, during the school season. Officers included Lucas and Phillips, with Melanie Hurst as treasurer and Paula Phillips as secretary. Board directors are Fort, Connie Terry and Pastor Darrell Strickland of Oxford Assembly of God, It was spring, a little over three years ago, Lucas said, noting that he had moved back to Wildwood a couple of years earlier. Friends had asked him to join the Wildwood Rotary Club and it was during one of those meetings that the Wildwood athletic director indicated the school would be looking for a new football coach. Lucas, who was a member of the 1964 state championship team, was asked to sit on the committee to select that coach. He said they interviewed nine people. Some very good ones, he said, adding that they went with Matt Thompson. Lucas met with him after he accepted the position. I asked him what he needed to be successful. The coach told him he needed a feeder system, which Lucas wasnt able to help with, and a good booster club. Lucas said he thought the club was definitely something he could help with. He and other local residents began talking the idea up and went to work. They decided on an athletic club to help all sports rather than a quarterback club that would help football only. Lucas said he participated in basketball, baseball and football when he was in school. Plus, it would keep the local merchants from being contacted for donations by different clubs, he said. I solicited a lot of my friends that I played ball with. We started with a golf tournament, he said, adding that it was tremendously successful. People came in from around the state and even outside the state, he said. Alumni from the school, they came out to support their alma mater. Anyone interested in joining or making a donation has several different options. Along with working on projects, they also have membership sponsors silver, gold and platinum. Platinum sponsorship is the ultimate. The donation is $750 and the sponsor gets a full page ad in the sports brochures, signage at every venue and free tickets to whatever school sport they choose to attend entry into the golf and fishing tournaments. Gold sponsors give $500 and get a half page ad in the sports program and free tickets to one sport. Silver sponsors donate $250 and get a quarter-page ad in the programs and ad signage on the football field Fence of Fame, as Lucas called it. Their fiscal year begins in July with the golf tournament, but sponsors can join anytime in the year. Lucas said they are gaining more and more participation and noted that last Friday night, for the home county game between Wildwood and South Sumter, one former teammate drove down all the way from North Carolina. During the football season, the club meets at 7 p.m. on Monday nights at Beef OBradys in Wildwood. Boosters break out the food to help ALL FOR THE WILDCATS BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesDee Hurst, her son Ken Hurst and club president Lester Lucas prepare for the rush of getting dinners put together and out to supporters. They sell hundreds of dinners at each of their barbecue fundraisers. Lynette Fort worked putting the barbecue on the bread and into the containers. Fort makes the barbecue sauce that the club uses. Members of the Wildwood Athletic Club were ready and rarin to put together dinners for one of four annual barbecues each year. The funds are used to help with athletic needs at Wildwood Middle High School. Pastor Darrell Strickland helped box lunches and get them out to the supporters. Strickland also serves to transport the players back and forth for dinner on game nights. He pastors the Oxford Assembly of God. Brenda Lucas helped coordinate, taking money and keeping track of what orders were to be delivered where.

The opportunity came through a Bone Collectors Hunting Event, held at the Bushnell Walmart. A three-day exhibition of goods sold by Walmart, Honda, Dodge, Daisy, Mossy Oak, Dead Down Wind and Bone Collectors, exhibitors set up in the parking lot and invited the public for a browse. Youth had a chance to shoot a BB gun, while others sampled paintball inside inflatable shooting ranges. Hunters were able to check out the goods and contemplate their next purchase for the season. Dodge had two trucks on scene and Honda had several ATVs. There were tree stands, camo wear and even camo tents. The event was held from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.

He already struggled with his relationship with God. Did God think this would make the relationship better? Ever since then my brother has had an issue with God. He hasnt forgiven God for taking his best friend at a young age, she said. I still shake my head at God, if not my fist, she said, because Ive tried ever since then to repair my brothers relationship with him. I still havent learned a lot from this, and Im not sure I will, although the situation brought my brother and I closer. Other than that Im still waiting to see why this happened. Back to Emily: I told her that in her disappointment and not wanting to be close to God, there will be people who will tell her, Read your Bible more! Pray! Give thanks! I told her that these are all good and needful things, but sometimes when you feel like God is far away and youre not all that fired up for Jesus anyway, maybe the best thing you can do is get alone with God and duke it out with him. The psalmist, King David, is famous for yelling at God, telling him exactly how mean he (God) is and that he hated the situation he was in. When we do that, God just sort of lets us pound his chest until were spent and then brushes aside our sweaty hair, picks us up, holds us close and tells us everything will be OK, even if it looks like everything is not OK. Emily recently wrote back: Even though Im still angry and frustrated and feel like this trial isnt teaching me anything but pain and suffering and I still dont feel like getting closer to God because I see him as the source of my frustration, I cant ignore him either Im not sure what the outcome will be, but I will get through this as honestly as I can.

Kids have returned to school, football is back on TV and hunting seasons already been going on a month now in South Florida. Most of us have already finished our preseason scouting, and weve hung our tree stands along well-traveled deer trails we hope next to a mature oak tree thatll soon begin dropping acorns. Finally, the time of year weve been waiting for is here! Bowhunting continues to be popular in our state. Beginning this year, even more folks are bound to take to the woods earlier, because on private lands, crossbow season has been extended; it now opens the same day as archery in each of the four hunting zones. Just like last year on private lands, hunting season still comes in first in Zone A, which is that part of the state south of State Road 70. Archery and crossbow seasons there started July 30. The fourth hunting zone, which was added last year and is made up in part by the Green Swamp Basin, is called Zone B and lies south of S.R. 50, west of U.S. 441 and the Kissimmee Waterway, north of S.R. 60 and east of the Gulf of Mexico. Archery and crossbow seasons in Zone B always begin on the third Saturday of October. This year, that falls on Oct. 15. The line that divides zones C and D begins at U.S. 27 at the (Gadsden County) Florida-Georgia state line and runs south on U.S. 27 until it meets S.R. 61 in Tallahassee. From there, it follows S.R. 61, running south until it hits U.S. 319. There, the line follows U.S. 319, continuing south to U.S. 98; it then runs east along U.S. 98 before turning south on Spring Creek Highway and continuing to the Gulf of Mexico. If you hunt west of that line, youre in Zone D, where archery and crossbow seasons begin on Oct. 22 this year. In Zone C, archery and crossbow seasons open on the third Saturday in September. This year, that date is Sept. 17. To hunt during archery season, youll need a Florida hunting license and an archery permit. During crossbow season, youll need a hunting license and crossbow permit. If youre a Florida resident, an annual hunting license will cost $17. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. Archery and crossbow permits cost just $5 each, and all deer hunters must have the $5 deer permit. Anyone planning on hunting one of Floridas many WMAs must purchase a management area permit for $26.50. And dont forget to pick up the WMA brochure for the area you wish to hunt, because the hunting season dates have changed since last year on many of them. The seasons this year have been adjusted on many of the areas to more closely align with the new zonal season dates that were modified last season on private lands. You can pick up a copy of these WMA brochures at your local tax collectors office or read them at MyFWC.com/Hunting. During archery season and that part of crossbow season that is concurrent with archery, you can take deer of either sex, regardless of antler size (except for spotted fawns). After archery ends, during the remaining portion of the crossbow season, only legal bucks (having at least one antler that is at least 5 inches long) may be taken. The daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag limits for deer on WMAs can differ, so check the specifics of the area before you hunt. You can hunt wild hogs on private lands yearround with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, theres also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On a few WMAs, bag and size limits do apply, so be sure to check the brochure for the specific area to be certain. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during archery and crossbow seasons, given you have a turkey permit ($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents). You can take only one turkey per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. Its against the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County in the fall, and its illegal to shoot them while theyre on the roost, over bait, when youre within 100 yards of a game-feeding station when bait is present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls. If youre hunting during the archery season, you may hunt only with a bow and must have the $5 archery permit. During crossbow season, you may use either a crossbow or bow but must have the $5 crossbow permit. On WMAs, only hunters with a disabled crossbow permit are allowed to use crossbows during archery season. All bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are permitted. For hunting deer, hogs and turkeys, broadheads must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.

Its like the WildwoodSouth Sumter had a weird hangover effect on both teams. In the opening game, South Sumter beat Wildwood 35-0. The following week, South Sumter lost to East Ridge 20-12 while Wildwood destroyed Brooksville Central 52-0 in Brooksville. One would think that South Sumter would win its following game and Wildwood would have serious problems after the loss to South Sumter. Thats not what happened, though. Wildwood (1-1) gained 512 yards total offense including 382 yards on the ground. Running back Jalen Gooden had 13 carries for 144 yards and a 13-yard touchdown run. Wildcat quarterback Sean Hensley had 10 carries for 104 yards. He also completed eight of 13 passes for 130 yards. He threw a 13-yard TD pass to Donte Johnson. Anfernee Martin ran twice all night but scored twice on runs of 35 and 16 yards. Meanwhile the Wildwood defense held Central to 54 total offensive yards and recovered two fumbles. Central did have problems with illness and quarterback Cole Teater was injured. Those, however, are not real excuses and the game may have been like a fantasy for the Wildcats. Wildwood High head football coach Matt LaBranche was very impressed with the Wildcats. I thought we played fundamentally strong football, said LaBranche. We had no turnovers and scored on all but two possessions. I thought we didnt execute the game plan against South Sumter. We executed the game plan this week. They played awesome. I thought it was a complete game for us. Special teams played well and so did the offense and defense. Wildwood will play Eustis there Friday night at 7 p.m. Eustis is very athletic and well-coached, said LaBranche. They have a couple of great running backs. They are fast and big. We have to try to control them. South Sumter Raiders take a loss East Ridge takes them in 20-12 game Sometimes, winning a game can seem to hurt a sports team when it comes to the next game. That seemed to happen when Clermont East Ridge Highs football team beat South Sumter High 20-12 in Clermont. Our team intensity at Wildwood (South Sumter beat Wildwood the previous week) was at a really high level, said South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman. We had a more mediocre level against East Ridge. We are disappointed we lost. We had more than enough opportunities to win. We just couldnt find a way to make it happen. Garrett McMullen scored two touchdowns and ran nine times for 46 yards. Shawn Baker caught five passes for 67 yards. Defensively, we played really well, the coach said. The offense didnt hold up their end of the bargain. Our center may have played his best game ever. Dalton Moss played extremely well. We were really pleased with his effort. He was our Offensive Player of the Week. You cant win with just one player, though, having a great game. Davey Vera, a corner back, had a great game. He had two blocked kicks. His second kick kept us in the game. He was the Defensive Player of the Week. Offensively, we didnt get the job done. Free safety Keanu Neal had 20 tackles, 10 solo tackles and 10 assists to lead the defense. Tevin Jones had seven solo tackles. Max McClain had three solo tackles and seven assists for 10 total tackles. Friday, The Raiders play Hernando at South Sumter. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. South Sumter wants to get that intensity level up like it was against Wildwood. Hernando beat East Ridge two weeks ago, Sherman said. They are a good football team. We expect a great football game.

Katlyn Fren was out fishing with her dad and caught this nice 2.8lb bass on a top water lure down on the south side of the lake. In last weeks article I mentioned that I would provide information about the various species of fish that reside in Lake Panasoffkee. Last week I provided information on the Bowfin, AKA the Mudfish This week I thought I would touch on one of my favorite panfish the Warmouth Perch. To start with, they like shade, especially creeks. Given the Summer temperatures, it seems to me like this would be a comfortable fish to beat the heat. The following is a little info, compliments of the FWC concerning the Warmouth Perch. Warmouth: Appearance : It has a stout, deep body similar to other panfish. A red eye and large mouth are conspicuous field marks. Three or four dark stripes radiating back from the eye across the cheek and gill cover like war paint confirm the identity. Habitat: Warmouths inhabit swamps, marshes, shallow lakes, slow-moving streams and canals with soft, muddy bottoms. They stay around aquatic vegetation, stumps and snags and under the banks of streams and ponds. They have more tolerance for muddy water than most species. Behavior : Warmouths are solitary nesters that prefer to nest adjacent to a submerged object. Nests are found over a wide range of water depths. They often spawn more than once a year usually between April and August. Crayfish, shrimp, insects and small fishes make up the bulk of their diet. Most feeding is done in the morning, as it appears to sleep at night. State Record: 2.44 lbs. Big Catch: 10 inches or 0.75 lbs. This fish is a real fighter They arent as big as Bluegill or Shellcrackers, but the meat is tasty. The bait of choice is live worms so swing by Tracys Point and well point you in the right direction. Good luck and good fishin! Some Things Fishy at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Fishing Report for week ending Sept. 11 By Donna and Steve Lind 3rd place was Gary Spencer with 4 fish for a total weight of 5.74lbs. Katlyn Fren was out fishing with her dad and caught this nice 2.8lb bass on a top water lure down on the south side of the lake. 2nd place was Danny Ball with 3 fish for a total weight of 6.42lbs. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will host its Youth Hunting Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, north of Tallahassee. Its no coincidence that this date happens to be National Hunting and Fishing Day, making the event a great opportunity for the entire family to come out and learn about hunting and fishing. The FWC is partnering with Tall Timbers to put on this free, half-day event for interested kids of all ages and their parents. Advance registration is not necessary for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will get to shoot at targets with bows and arrows, shotguns, rifles and muzzleloading guns. Other activities include a hunting-dog demonstration. Those who have taken the online hunter safety course can complete the required field activities at the event by registering at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety. Also, participants are eligible for door prizes, including a youth hunt or a free week of summer camp in Ocala or at the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center (BTYCC), near Tallahassee. The BTYCC is part of the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network initiative to create youth centers that will provide opportunities for young people and families to participate in outdoor activities and share experiences that strengthen connections with and support for fish and wildlife conservation. The Sept. 24 Youth Hunting Field Day sponsors and volunteers include the Future of Hunting in Florida, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Talquin Portable Restrooms, Ducks Unlimited, Jefferson Long Rifles, Tallahassee Bowhunters Association, Horse Creek Traditional Archery Club, Quality Deer Management Association, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Safari Club International, the Florida Forest Service, Dog Pond Kennels and Hard Labor Creek Plantation. For more information on Youth Hunting Field Day, call 850-413-0084. For directions to Tall Timbers Research Station, go to www.talltimbers.org. 1st place was Dale Jackson with 5 fish for a total weight of 8.99lbs. Youth Hunting Field Day set for Sept. 24 Balloon releases take a toll on wildlife The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds event organizers and other Floridians about a law prohibiting the release of more than nine lighter-than-air balloons within a 24-hour period. While releasing balloons is often an idea of groups that wish to honor an event or lost loved one, the FWC encourages the public to choose more environmentally responsible actions for their events. Balloons released in Florida almost inevitably end up in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean. Wildlife, especially sea turtles, mistake balloons for food, and strings attached to balloons can entangle birds and other animals. The release into the atmosphere of large numbers of balloons inflated with lighter-thanair gases poses a danger and nuisance to the environment, particularly to wildlife and marine animals. Violators could incur $250 in fines according to Florida law. There are exceptions for scientific or meteorological balloons released by a government agency or under government contract, hot air balloons that are recovered after launching and balloons released indoors. The law also allows for the release of balloons that are biodegradable or photodegradable under FWC rules. Since 1989, the FWC has received only one such balloon design for review, and that balloon was not approved. Southwest Florida Water Management District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts on District land this fall and winter to help reduce the wild hog population. Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/Ho gHunt/. Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, or until they are sold out. The cost is $50 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the hunts will be held: Nov. 15 to17 Upper Hillsborough Preserve Alston Tract, Pasco County Dec. 6 to 8 and Jan. 24 to 26 McGregor Smith Scout Reservation, Citrus County Dec. 13 to 15 Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve Hampton Tract, Polk County Jan. 10 to 12 and Feb. 7 to 9 Edward W. Chance Reserve Coker Prairie Tract, Manatee County Jan. 17 to 19 Little Manatee River Southfork Tract, Manatee County Feb. 7 to 9 Conner Preserve, Conner Preserve, Pasco County The District-managed properties will be temporarily closed to the public during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. In addition to obtaining a permit online, maps and hunting rules of the areas where the hunts will take place are available on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/Ho gHunt/. This is the fourth consecutive year for the hunts. Last years hunts removed one hundred hogs from four different tracts of land throughout the District. District to hold series of hog hunts, permits will be available online

However, when searching the internet for advice or helpful information, be sure the sites you are searching are reputable and legitimate. This holds true for animal sanctuaries and rescue groups. Websites can be created to show playful and happy puppies and kittens in a picture perfect environment, but what you see may not be at all true. Sumter DART has been called to transport animals from many rescues and sanctuaries that were nothing like what their websites portrayed them to be. The conditions were horrific and the people charged with animal cruelty. Citizens are now learning about puppy mills and are choosing to not buy from pet stores that sell puppies. The animals sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, which are large breeding facilities where the animals are kept in filthy and deplorable conditions. Held in small cages their whole lives, they are bred every heat cycle. They receive minimal food and water, just enough to keep them alive to breed again, and are not given any veterinarian care for illnesses or injuries they sustain. Lost sales at pet stores have now given way for breeders to market their puppies and kittens online. The puppy mill breeders are now using the internet to sell their animals. Their websites do not tell you that they are puppy mills, but print false information and deceptive pictures. So what can you do? First and foremost, opt to adopt! Adopt your next best friend from a humane society or legitimate rescue organization. Adopting a pet will not only saves that animals life, but will make room for another animal to be rescued. How can you tell if the organization you are getting your pet from is legitimate? Any legitimate rescue organizations will NOT sell you an animal. They will have you fill out an adoption application that will be processed to assure the animal is going to a good home. If approved, an adoption fee is charged, which goes to help save more homeless animals. Legitimate organizations will have information on the pets personality, their health records, and the pet will be spayed or neutered. The only way to stop the cruelty of puppy mills is to stop buying animals. When there is no more market for their products they will stop producing. It is up to all of us to support legitimate rescue organizations and humane societies, and appreciate the life saving work they do. This beauty is Putt Putt.

The Sumter County Sheriffs Office successfully implemented a cybersex sting operation earlier this year called STARCOP that resulted in the arrest of 22 suspects on charges related to attempting to meet children through the Internet for sex. We considered the operation a great success, said Sumter sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. I think that the arrests highlight the potential danger that minors face while using the Internet. Because of the success of STARCOP the sheriffs office is planning similar operations. In addition to our efforts to highlight the dangers that minors face on the Internet, there needs to be an enforcement presence on the Internet, he said. As evidenced by its recent successes across the state to target online sexual predators the Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative uses best practices, collaboration, and education in an effort to keep Floridas children safe.

BOBREICHMAN Editor Adam Whitman Whitman sings at Pentagon Top officers from the United States bowed their heads in memory and honor, the crowd waited silently as the Sept. 11 ceremony of remembrance took place at the United States Pentagon. The United States Navy Sea Chanters began a moving rendition of Amazing Grace. Thats when family and friends recognized the voice the clear tenor of Adam Whitman as he performed the lead solo in the song. Whitman joined the Sea Chanters in 2009. Growing up in Webster, he was a 2003 graduate of South Sumter High School and class valedictorian. Whitmans mother Lisa works in personnel at the Sumter County School Board. When asked to share how she felt about the fact that her son performed at the 9/11 service, she said, Im going to start crying. Her voice began to break BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Honored as a local hero Tonya Mullan has been a driver for Sumter County Transit for the past five years. This year she was honored for saving two lives in Sumter County and named the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year. The state agency provided more than 51 million trips last year and employs thousands of drivers. County bus driver honored for assistance Police officers and firefighters are touted as heroes as they face the bad guys and run into burning buildings. But not all heroes hire on for emergency rescue. Consider Tonya Mullan a four-year driver for Sumter County Transit, loves her job. I love driving, meeting new people and I love helping them, she said. And because of her dedication to her job and love of helping others, Mullan is a hero, saving two lives last year. The first incident occurred during the colder months. Mullan said she arrived at the home of one client to pick her up and take her to a doctors appointment. The Villages resident headed down her sidewalk as Mullan opened the van door and began writing down mileage for the trip. Thats when Mullan heard a call for help. She had slipped on the sidewalk on the ice, Mullan said. The passenger decided she just wanted to go home but Mullan was concerned, noting the resident had a large bump on her head. Not comfortable with allowing the woman to return home without being checked over, I insisted on her going somewhere, Mullan said, adding that she took her to urgent care. They flew her out. They said she probably would have died. After a while, when you drive, you know peoples routines, she said. Its that knowledge that helped in saving a second client.

Talent reigns at competition The rain came down, but that didnt stop contestants or the audience in the third round of Lickety Splits karaoke competition last Friday night. Dozens of people settled in lawn chairs beneath pop-up tents, under the outdoor sheds and beneath umbrellas to listen as top talents crooned their way to the top spots outside the Bushnell ice cream shop. First-place winner Allen Clemmitt wowed the audience and wooed the ladies with his rendition of Mrs. Jones kneeling before some of the women as he sang the romantic tune. Second place went to John Hindman and third to Emily Poe. The three will be in the finalist round in October and are in the running for the $1,000 cash prize. The song competition drew couples, families and friends, all volleying between the ice cream shop for sandwiches, ice cream and drinks and the outdoor show for entertainment.

as she continued, because hes serving his country and hes serving his God. Whitman shared his thoughts of the performance. Of course it was a great honor to sing for the 9/11 Pentagon remembrance ceremony, but it didnt hit me until the moment of silence before the song began, he said. I was not meant to be the shining star. I was meant to be a leader in a worshipful and reverent moment, to honor those whose lives were taken on that tragic day. Mrs. Whitman said they didnt know the Sea Chanters would be singing until Thursday. She said details were sketchy and security was pretty tight. As for the solo part, they didnt know about that until they actually saw it. They werent even sure it was going to be televised, much less the entire song. The Whitmans attend the St. Cloud church where Mrs. Whitmans father preaches. It was during church that her sister contacted her and she learned that Adam had a solo part. Once it aired, lots of friends and family began contacting them. After his South Sumter High graduation, Whitman went on attend to Florida State University where he worked toward dual majors education and music. I tried to convince him to be an accountant, Mrs. Whitman said with a laugh, adding that she asked him What are you going to do in music? Amazing. He knew where he was heading after his first year at FSU. She said he told her, I cant do it. I cant be an accountant, I love music too much. When he started at the college, it was in band, playing trombone with the Marching Chiefs. Then he tried out as vocalist and was accepted. After graduation from FSU, he taught in Orlando for a few weeks, but economic cutbacks took that job. Whitman was among the last in and the first out. It ended up being a God thing, she said. He emailed his professor at the university, who then urged him to tryout for the United States Navy Sea Chanters. They sent CDs and followed the process he had to eventually go to Washington, D.C. for an audition, was accepted and went through boot camp. Hes a member of a presidential support unit based in the Washington, D.C. area. A petty officer, Whitmans honors include a 2007 first place in the National Teachers Association of Singing regional competition. He was a featured soloist in choirs under the direction of Kevin Fenton and Andre Thomas and a charter member of the Festival Singers of Florida under the direction of Kevin Fenton. He was also a member of the internationally known collegiate a capella group, AllNight Yahtzee. The Sea Chanters perform a variety of music, from various periods and often perform as part of the nations most important events. PAGE2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER15, 2011 the past 11 months, 177 persons have been arrested from sting operations conducted across several Florida counties. Florida Sheriffs Association is dedicated to keeping children safe from the dangers that are lurking online with this collaborative effort which shares resources to combat the epidemic of online sexual exploitation of children. Combined resources from sheriffs offices, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Florida Attorney General, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) taskforce, and many Florida school superintendents have provided support and education for this initiative. To date, the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative, through the sheriffs offices school resource officers and Attorney Generals Cyber Crime Unit team, have educated more than 214,000 children about staying safe on the streets and on the Internet. One such example, a cybersafety program started by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office launched in Oct. 2010, has already worked with 104,516 students in elementary, middle and high schools across 25 counties in Florida. FSA leaders say that educating children is critical to helping them combat the sexual predators who are attempting to lure kids through Internet chat rooms. Leading the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative is Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, who launched the first operation in October 2010. Operation Grim Reaper netted 22 arrests after 700 hours of logged chat time online. This is the crime you never see, this is the crime you never hear of, said Dawsy, and we are declaring war on this epidemic. The Florida Sheriffs Association Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative is going on the road and it will be coming to a town near you. FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative successes also include the following operations: Citrus County, an additional 18 arrested in Operation Cyber Guardian Lake County, 32 arrested in Operation Summer Nights Polk County, 22 arrested in Operation Last House Call St. Johns County, 17 arrested in Operation Sheepdog Volusia County, 15 arrested and 14 leads are still under investigation in Operation Cyber Sting. Sheriff Ben Johnson of Volusia County, president of the Florida Sheriffs Association, is pleased to offer this cyber sexual predator toolkit to other agencies. Johnson explained, We are sharing the FSA Cyber Sexual Predator Initiative to provide real resources to other agencies, including step-by-step instructions on developing chat room personnel, conducting undercover operations, drafting search warrants, and selecting the location that will aid in the successful prosecution of those preying on our youths. Dawsy and Sheriff Judd (Polk County), as well as the other sheriffs and their staff who took part in this initiative, are available to assist in sharing this template with other law enforcement agencies to implement in their own areas.

I heard something when I was knocking, she said, adding that it was very faint. Never receiving an answer, Mullan contacted her dispatch office and had them call 911. When emergency rescue personnel got inside, they found the elderly woman on the floor in her bathroom, where she had fallen the night before. She was in pretty bad shape, Mullan said. With a broken hip, the resident was taken to the hospital for treatment. Not only did Mullan remain persistent and get her the help she needed, she took time out to go to the hospital for a visit. Im just blessed that I was able to help them. Mullan said her life is plain and simple. She and her husband Jimmy have been married for 24 years and have lived in Sumter County for five years now. I used to drive a school bus in Polk County. I love driving, she said. The mother of three also takes pride in the success of her grown children. Her oldest son, Kirt, is in the military and has served two tours in Iraq; daughter Tabitha is in nursing and youngest son, Jeffrey, is also joining the military. A woman who said her life is plain and simple, is credited with helping save two lives and being named the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year. The state agency provided more than 51 million trips last year and employs thousands of drivers. Its really quite prestigious to be honored, said Mullans boss and Sumter transit director Dave Levesque. It makes for one very, very proud transit manager, Levesque said of Mullans effort. Ive been in this business since 1993, both here and in New Jersey, medical and non-medical, he said. Ive never worked with a group of drivers like this. They really, really, really care about the passengers, he said. I dont know who is more proud While Mullan is thrilled with the honor, she said shes just happy that she was able to make a little bit of a difference in the lives of others. HERO continued from Page 1 Mullan received the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged Driver of the Year award. Mother of three grown children, she feels she lives a simple life and is simply glad to help others. Mullan is shown here with her boss Dave Levesque just outside the award ceremony, held earlier this year on the east coast. 680 E.

Sumter County Sheriffs detectives arrested Lindsay J. Cunningham, 27, of Webster charging her with Criminal Use of Personal Identification Information. On Sept. 2, sheriffs detectives began investigating fraudulent ATM withdrawals from the victims bank account without their knowledge or consent. The victim is an unidentified elderly person who Cunningham had befriended. During an interview, Cunningham admitted to detectives to removing the victims ATM card and PIN number and using them to make the withdrawals. Cunningham was arrested and taken to the Sumter County Detention Center in lieu of a $2,000 dollar bond. To help protect you against identity theft, Sheriff Farmer offers the following tips: To minimize the amount of information a thief can steal, do not carry extra credit cards, your Social Security card, birth certificate or passport in your wallet or purse, except when needed. You can limit the number of pre-approved offers of credit that you receive in the mail by removing your name from the marketing lists of the three credit reporting bureaus. These pre-approved offers usually are discarded in the trash. Shred charge receipts, bank statements, credit applications and other forms that contain personal information before discarding. When ordering new checks, dont have them sent to your home. Pick them up at the bank instead. When you pay bills, do not leave the envelopes containing your checks at your homes mailbox for the postal carrier to pick up. If stolen, your checks can be altered and then cashed. If stolen, credit card payments contain all the necessary information an identity thief needs. Its best to mail bills and other sensitive items at the post office rather than from your residence or neighborhood drop boxes. Never give out your credit card number or other personal information over the telephone unless you have a trusted business relationship with the company and you have initiated the call. Always take credit card and ATM receipts with you. Never toss then in a public trash container. Watch the mail when you are expecting a new credit card that you have applied for or a re-issued card that has expired. Immediately contact the issuer if the credit card does not arrive. When creating passwords and PINs, do not use the last four digits of your Social Security number, your birth date, middle name, mothers maiden name, address, consecutive numbers or anything else that could be discovered easily by thieves. Memorize all of your passwords and PINs. Dont record them on anything in your wallet or purse. Shield your hand when using your PIN at a bank ATM or when making long distance phone calls with your phone card. Carefully review your credit card statements and phone bills for any unauthorized charges or fraudulent use. Sumter County Sheriffs detectives arrested Clayton L. Lloyd, 34, of Wildwood charging him with Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements. In 1998, Lloyd was convicted of Attempted Sexual Battery on a Child Less Than 16 years of Age and designated as a sex offender. As part of his sex offender obligations, Lloyd is required to register bi-annually at the sheriffs office to include electronic mail addresses and instant message names prior to their use. Acting on a tip, sheriffs detectives discovered that Lloyd had failed to register a one year old Cleatis Clizdel Facebook account he established and was using other unregistered user names such as master_romance101 on other websites.

Lloyd Arrested man claims he was seeking gas money A Center Hill man reportedly told deputies he broke into a house last week because he was trying to borrow money for gas. Deputies werent convinced and ended up arresting Kevin Antoine James, 45, on Tuesday, Sept. 6, for burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest with violence. James was found inside a residence on State Street at 11:09 a.m. after someone called the sheriffs office saying there was a burglary in progress, according to a sheriffs office report. As deputies went to the front door to investigate, they saw it was open about two inches, the report states. When officers attempted to enter, the suspect tried to keep the door closed. Deputy Andy Shepherd grabbed the door handle and pushed the door twice using his shoulder, according to the report. On his third attempt, he was able to push the door open with enough force to knock the suspect back. The deputy then attempted to arrest James who resisted the officer before finally being placed to the ground and handcuffed. The deputy found a white cotton bag with two wrist watches inside that James had reportedly attempted to conceal under a couch. The watches were valued at $210. James told the deputy he ran out of gas and came to the residence to borrow money, according to the report. James said when he didnt get an answer he entered through a window looking for change. The watches were taken when James couldnt find any money. James was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $18,000. He was additionally wanted on a Sumter County warrant for an order of commitment for not having a valid drivers license. He was ordered to serve 29 days.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER15, 2011 Sheriffs actions are a positive step The Florida Sheriffs Association is leading a statewide effort to fight Internet crimes that target children and the association is offering its information and techniques to other law enforcement agencies throughout the state that want to join the effort The associations actions to target sexual predators who find their victims through Internet conversations is showing very positive results that hopefully will curb this type of intolerable crime. The Sumter County Sheriffs Office has helped lead the state effort in arresting sexual predators who try to prey on local children. Earlier this year, 22 suspects were arrested when sheriffs department officers set up STARCOP to apprehend sexual predators as they attempted to set up meetings with what they thought were underage children. But instead of children, they ended up meeting law enforcement officers who arrested the suspects. Some people were surprised that so many people were arrested during Sumters operation. Sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker said he estimated that the department would end up arresting 21 people but others in the department expected lower numbers. Because of Sumters success, other similar operations are being planned. With Sumter arresting 22 people and similar arrests made in other counties, the Florida Sheriffs Association has made a wise choice to share its techniques and information with other law enforcement agencies. There is no doubt that the Internet is a very valuable tool, but along with that comes so very dangerous territory for youngsters. Parents and guardians need to look at the amount of arrests in these types of law enforcement operations and be aware that the Internet can also be used as an effective means for sexual predators to lure in their young victims. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerces newest event offers a sampling of area delicacies and a chance to help local students pay for college. A Taste of Simply Sumter, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 6, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Continental Country Club 50 Continental Blvd., in Wildwood, will promote the countys unique dining and shopping attractions, and raise money for new scholarships for graduating seniors at Wildwood Middle-High School, South Sumter High School, and The Villages Charter High School.

A selection of distinctive local restaurants will serve samples of their signature dishes, while guests enjoy live entertainment and browse displays from local boutiques and specialty shops.

Drowsy driving can have fatal consequences You fight to keep your eyes opened, your head up. You have stopped for coffee because you just have to get to your destination as soon as possible. Then before you have time to react, you are wide-awake enough to see oncoming traffic, since youll have veered into it! All too often this scenario is real on Floridas roadways. To prevent crashes caused by driver fatigue and save lives, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Transportation are teaming up with lawmakers and safety advocates during Floridas Drowsy Driving Prevention Week on Sept. 5 through 9. State Rep. Alan Williams, District 8, sponsored the legislation that created the Ronshay Dugans Act in 2010, which designates the first week of September as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. Ronshay lost her life after a driver crashed into the bus that she was riding, said Representative Williams. Her family shares their story about their loss so other families might be spared this tragedy. Drowsy driving can be eliminated with simple planning and a conscious decision to pull over when you know you are tired. We want everyone traveling Florida roads to arrive safely at their destinations. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that each year driver fatigue results in 100,000 policereported crashes, 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. However, the full impact that sleepy drivers have is unknown because crashes caused by driver fatigue are under-reported as they often rely on a driver to self-report. According to NHTSA, drivers in the following three groups pose the highest risk of falling asleep while driving. Young people (ages 16 to 29), especially males Shift workers whose sleep is disrupted by working at night or working long or irregular hours People with untreated sleep apnea syndrome and narcolepsy Regardless of a drivers vocation, age, sex, health condition or other characteristics, any driver can become overconfident and fall victim to drowsy driving. Measures that drivers can take to stay alert behind the steering wheel are: Catch some Zs. A good nights sleep goes a long way to prevent drowsy driving. Most adults need seven to nine hours, and most teenagers need 8.5 to 9.5 hours to maintain proper alertness during the day. Bring a buddy. By having another driver on board, you have someone to share the driving responsibilities and help keep one another alert. Take a break. Stopping to get out and stretch your legs every few hours or even to catch a quick nap will help you recharge your battery. Drive sober. Alcohol and driving never mix. Also, heed prescription medication labels and any warnings that say they may make you drowsy. Fatigue and drowsiness can impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely, which not only puts you and your passengers in danger, but also it places everyone else on the road with you at risk. Check out the Drowsy Driving Awareness Week webpage at www.dot.state.fl.us/safety for more information.

The church was founded in 1882 by its first pastor, Rev. Martin B. Bryant of Montclair. He would walk to church every Sunday morning through grassy paths in the woods from Montclair to Webster (28 miles one way) and was never late for Sunday school. We were very honored to still have our oldest living disciple with us, Deaconess Mable (Mrs. Moland) Godfrey. She has been a member for 87 years. She gave her life to Christ when she was only 10 years old in 1924 under the leadership of Rev. Jasper Boone Sr. 129th Anniversary Pastor, Minister Roy W. Mitchell and Mother of Mt.

Lake Panasoffkee residents lost their home Monday to what authorities believe was an accidental fire. It took firefighters about 15 minutes to get the fire out. A Lake Panasoffkee home was destroyed by fire Monday afternoon, according to Leland Greek, fire services division director. Sumter County Fire and EMS responded to a report of a structure fire at 3437 C.R. 341. When the first engine arrived on scene, crew members found that more than 30 percent of the house was involved. They also learned there were several oxygen tanks inside. According to Greek, the oxygen did not cause a problem and firefighters were able to quickly knock down the fire within approximately 15 minutes. Three engines and two tankers responded to the blaze. The homeowner was taken to the hospital for treatment of medical issues. Greek said the investigation is ongoing, however it does appear that the fire was accidental. No other information was available at press time. Blaze destroys Panasoffkee home Fire Services Director Leland Greek said the investigation is ongoing, however it does appear that the fire was accidental. Monday afternoon fireGrace notes Disappointment with God Afew months ago, I got a letter from someone Ill call Emily. She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously. Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it. She wants to help him, but he doesnt want her help. So not only does she feel helpless, but shes beginning to feel hopeless because God is silent. His silence she interprets as his disinterest. Thats the source of her real pain. Ive tried to be close and lean on him, but it always leads to disappointment, she wrote. Not depending on God is better for me because then he doesnt let me down. Im not one of those fired up for Jesus Christians, but Ive always wanted to be I could really use some encouragement. I wrote her back, saying, I know exactly what you mean by not being a fired up for Jesus Christian, because Im not one either. I told Emily that disappointment with God comes from expecting him to do things the way we want him to, and sometimes he does. Mostly, though, he doesnt. (But ultimately, he does things better.) Recently, I polled some people on Facebook, asking if they had ever shaken their fist at God in anger and frustration. One woman replied that after her father worked hard all his life, shortly after he retired he had a massive stroke and ended up hooked up to machines until he finally died days later. The mans daughter said she remembers screaming in her back yard, How can you do that to Daddy? What kind of a God are you? Youre cruel and heartless and Im never going to believe in you or serve you again! Almost 30 years later, this woman has since watched her mother, husband and brother die from long, lingering illnesses and said, Looking back, I realize that God was very kind to my father (and to my mother because Daddy was not long on patience and would have been a terrible patient for my mother to have to care for!). Being an invalid would have been hell on earth for Daddy. So, Gods timing is always perfect, even though we might not think so at the time. Another woman said its not so much fist-shaking anymore as it is still holding a bit of a grudge with God ever since her brothers best friend committed suicide years ago. My fist-shaking is twofold, she said. One, of course, was why did God take him from us and why did it happen that way? More than that, however, Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimes See GRACE, Page 11

PAGE8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER15, 2011 If you see the little engine at the Wildwood Shopping Center, you dont want to pass it up. This little engine is a sign that lunch is on and flavors a guarantee as members of the Wildwood Athletic Club host their quarterly barbecue fundraisers. For the past three years, the club has been working barbecues and several other events to help fund sports needs at Wildwood Middle High School. Slow cooked by club vice president Roger Phillips in his custom-built Seaboard Railroad Air Line engine, its barbecue that will melt in your mouth, with a sauce thats all flavor. Member Lynette Fort makes the sauce. As proof, club president and founder Lester Lucas said they made enough for 400 sandwiches recently thinking theyd have enough for the game that night too. They sold out at lunch. They make the barbecue three to four times a year now, during the school season. Officers included Lucas and Phillips, with Melanie Hurst as treasurer and Paula Phillips as secretary. Board directors are Fort, Connie Terry and Pastor Darrell Strickland of Oxford Assembly of God, It was spring, a little over three years ago, Lucas said, noting that he had moved back to Wildwood a couple of years earlier. Friends had asked him to join the Wildwood Rotary Club and it was during one of those meetings that the Wildwood athletic director indicated the school would be looking for a new football coach. Lucas, who was a member of the 1964 state championship team, was asked to sit on the committee to select that coach. He said they interviewed nine people. Some very good ones, he said, adding that they went with Matt Thompson. Lucas met with him after he accepted the position. I asked him what he needed to be successful. The coach told him he needed a feeder system, which Lucas wasnt able to help with, and a good booster club. Lucas said he thought the club was definitely something he could help with. He and other local residents began talking the idea up and went to work. They decided on an athletic club to help all sports rather than a quarterback club that would help football only. Lucas said he participated in basketball, baseball and football when he was in school. Plus, it would keep the local merchants from being contacted for donations by different clubs, he said. I solicited a lot of my friends that I played ball with. We started with a golf tournament, he said, adding that it was tremendously successful. People came in from around the state and even outside the state, he said. Alumni from the school, they came out to support their alma mater. Anyone interested in joining or making a donation has several different options. Along with working on projects, they also have membership sponsors silver, gold and platinum. Platinum sponsorship is the ultimate. The donation is $750 and the sponsor gets a full page ad in the sports brochures, signage at every venue and free tickets to whatever school sport they choose to attend entry into the golf and fishing tournaments. Gold sponsors give $500 and get a half page ad in the sports program and free tickets to one sport. Silver sponsors donate $250 and get a quarter-page ad in the programs and ad signage on the football field Fence of Fame, as Lucas called it. Their fiscal year begins in July with the golf tournament, but sponsors can join anytime in the year. Lucas said they are gaining more and more participation and noted that last Friday night, for the home county game between Wildwood and South Sumter, one former teammate drove down all the way from North Carolina. During the football season, the club meets at 7 p.m. on Monday nights at Beef OBradys in Wildwood. Boosters break out the food to help ALL FOR THE WILDCATS BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesDee Hurst, her son Ken Hurst and club president Lester Lucas prepare for the rush of getting dinners put together and out to supporters. They sell hundreds of dinners at each of their barbecue fundraisers. Lynette Fort worked putting the barbecue on the bread and into the containers. Fort makes the barbecue sauce that the club uses. Members of the Wildwood Athletic Club were ready and rarin to put together dinners for one of four annual barbecues each year. The funds are used to help with athletic needs at Wildwood Middle High School. Pastor Darrell Strickland helped box lunches and get them out to the supporters. Strickland also serves to transport the players back and forth for dinner on game nights. He pastors the Oxford Assembly of God. Brenda Lucas helped coordinate, taking money and keeping track of what orders were to be delivered where.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER15, 2011, PAGE11 642-0915-SCT NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARING The City of Bushnell has tentatively adopted a budget for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 A public hearing to make a FINAL DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on Monday, September 19th 2011 at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 117 E. Joe P. Strickland, Jr. Avenue, Bushnell, Florida CITY OF BUSHNELL Joy Coleman, CMC, City Clerk 00099DL 00099DK 641-0915-SCT is how it affected her brothers faith. He already struggled with his relationship with God. Did God think this would make the relationship better? Ever since then my brother has had an issue with God. He hasnt forgiven God for taking his best friend at a young age, she said. I still shake my head at God, if not my fist, she said, because Ive tried ever since then to repair my brothers relationship with him. I still havent learned a lot from this, and Im not sure I will, although the situation brought my brother and I closer. Other than that Im still waiting to see why this happened. Back to Emily: I told her that in her disappointment and not wanting to be close to God, there will be people who will tell her, Read your Bible more! Pray! Give thanks! I told her that these are all good and needful things, but sometimes when you feel like God is far away and youre not all that fired up for Jesus anyway, maybe the best thing you can do is get alone with God and duke it out with him. The psalmist, King David, is famous for yelling at God, telling him exactly how mean he (God) is and that he hated the situation he was in. When we do that, God just sort of lets us pound his chest until were spent and then brushes aside our sweaty hair, picks us up, holds us close and tells us everything will be OK, even if it looks like everything is not OK. Emily recently wrote back: Even though Im still angry and frustrated and feel like this trial isnt teaching me anything but pain and suffering and I still dont feel like getting closer to God because I see him as the source of my frustration, I cant ignore him either Im not sure what the outcome will be, but I will get through this as honestly as I can. Sometimes, thats all weve got, and thats a start.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Kids have returned to school, football is back on TV and hunting seasons already been going on a month now in South Florida. Most of us have already finished our preseason scouting, and weve hung our tree stands along well-traveled deer trails we hope next to a mature oak tree thatll soon begin dropping acorns. Finally, the time of year weve been waiting for is here! Bowhunting continues to be popular in our state. Beginning this year, even more folks are bound to take to the woods earlier, because on private lands, crossbow season has been extended; it now opens the same day as archery in each of the four hunting zones. Just like last year on private lands, hunting season still comes in first in Zone A, which is that part of the state south of State Road 70. Archery and crossbow seasons there started July 30. The fourth hunting zone, which was added last year and is made up in part by the Green Swamp Basin, is called Zone B and lies south of S.R. 50, west of U.S. 441 and the Kissimmee Waterway, north of S.R. 60 and east of the Gulf of Mexico. Archery and crossbow seasons in Zone B always begin on the third Saturday of October. This year, that falls on Oct. 15. The line that divides zones C and D begins at U.S. 27 at the (Gadsden County) Florida-Georgia state line and runs south on U.S. 27 until it meets S.R. 61 in Tallahassee. From there, it follows S.R. 61, running south until it hits U.S. 319. There, the line follows U.S. 319, continuing south to U.S. 98; it then runs east along U.S. 98 before turning south on Spring Creek Highway and continuing to the Gulf of Mexico. If you hunt west of that line, youre in Zone D, where archery and crossbow seasons begin on Oct. 22 this year. In Zone C, archery and crossbow seasons open on the third Saturday in September. This year, that date is Sept. 17. To hunt during archery season, youll need a Florida hunting license and an archery permit. During crossbow season, youll need a hunting license and crossbow permit. If youre a Florida resident, an annual hunting license will cost $17. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. Archery and crossbow permits cost just $5 each, and all deer hunters must have the $5 deer permit. Anyone planning on hunting one of Floridas many WMAs must purchase a management area permit for $26.50. And dont forget to pick up the WMA brochure for the area you wish to hunt, because the hunting season dates have changed since last year on many of them. The seasons this year have been adjusted on many of the areas to more closely align with the new zonal season dates that were modified last season on private lands. You can pick up a copy of these WMA brochures at your local tax collectors office or read them at MyFWC.com/Hunting. During archery season and that part of crossbow season that is concurrent with archery, you can take deer of either sex, regardless of antler size (except for spotted fawns). After archery ends, during the remaining portion of the crossbow season, only legal bucks (having at least one antler that is at least 5 inches long) may be taken. The daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag limits for deer on WMAs can differ, so check the specifics of the area before you hunt. You can hunt wild hogs on private lands yearround with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, theres also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On a few WMAs, bag and size limits do apply, so be sure to check the brochure for the specific area to be certain. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during archery and crossbow seasons, given you have a turkey permit ($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents). You can take only one turkey per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. Its against the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County in the fall, and its illegal to shoot them while theyre on the roost, over bait, when youre within 100 yards of a game-feeding station when bait is present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls. If youre hunting during the archery season, you may hunt only with a bow and must have the $5 archery permit. During crossbow season, you may use either a crossbow or bow but must have the $5 crossbow permit. On WMAs, only hunters with a disabled crossbow permit are allowed to use crossbows during archery season. All bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are permitted. For hunting deer, hogs and turkeys, broadheads must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.Tony Young isthe media relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and GameManagement.

Its like the WildwoodSouth Sumter had a weird hangover effect on both teams. In the opening game, South Sumter beat Wildwood 35-0. The following week, South Sumter lost to East Ridge 20-12 while Wildwood destroyed Brooksville Central 52-0 in Brooksville. One would think that South Sumter would win its following game and Wildwood would have serious problems after the loss to South Sumter. Thats not what happened, though. Wildwood (1-1) gained 512 yards total offense including 382 yards on the ground. Running back Jalen Gooden had 13 carries for 144 yards and a 13-yard touchdown run. Wildcat quarterback Sean Hensley had 10 carries for 104 yards. He also completed eight of 13 passes for 130 yards. He threw a 13-yard TD pass to Donte Johnson. Anfernee Martin ran twice all night but scored twice on runs of 35 and 16 yards. Meanwhile the Wildwood defense held Central to 54 total offensive yards and recovered two fumbles. Central did have problems with illness and quarterback Cole Teater was injured. Those, however, are not real excuses and the game may have been like a fantasy for the Wildcats. Wildwood High head football coach Matt LaBranche was very impressed with the Wildcats. I thought we played fundamentally strong football, said LaBranche. We had no turnovers and scored on all but two possessions. I thought we didnt execute the game plan against South Sumter. We executed the game plan this week. They played awesome. I thought it was a complete game for us. Special teams played well and so did the offense and defense. Wildwood will play Eustis there Friday night at 7 p.m. Eustis is very athletic and well-coached, said LaBranche. They have a couple of great running backs. They are fast and big. We have to try to control them. South Sumter Raiders take a lossEast Ridge takes them in 20-12 game Sometimes, winning a game can seem to hurt a sports team when it comes to the next game. That seemed to happen when Clermont East Ridge Highs football team beat South Sumter High 20-12 in Clermont. Our team intensity at Wildwood (South Sumter beat Wildwood the previous week) was at a really high level, said South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman. We had a more mediocre level against East Ridge. We are disappointed we lost. We had more than enough opportunities to win. We just couldnt find a way to make it happen. Garrett McMullen scored two touchdowns and ran nine times for 46 yards. Shawn Baker caught five passes for 67 yards. Defensively, we played really well, the coach said. The offense didnt hold up their end of the bargain. Our center may have played his best game ever. Dalton Moss played extremely well. We were really pleased with his effort. He was our Offensive Player of the Week. You cant win with just one player, though, having a great game. Davey Vera, a corner back, had a great game. He had two blocked kicks. His second kick kept us in the game. He was the Defensive Player of the Week. Offensively, we didnt get the job done. Free safety Keanu Neal had 20 tackles, 10 solo tackles and 10 assists to lead the defense. Tevin Jones had seven solo tackles. Max McClain had three solo tackles and seven assists for 10 total tackles. Friday, The Raiders play Hernando at South Sumter. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. South Sumter wants to get that intensity level up like it was against Wildwood. Hernando beat East Ridge two weeks ago, Sherman said. They are a good football team. We expect a great football game.

Katlyn Fren was out fishing with her dad and caught this nice 2.8lb bass on a top water lure down on the south side of the lake. In last weeks article I mentioned that I would provide information about the various species of fish that reside in Lake Panasoffkee. Last week I provided information on the Bowfin, AKA the Mudfish This week I thought I would touch on one of my favorite panfish the Warmouth Perch. To start with, they like shade, especially creeks. Given the Summer temperatures, it seems to me like this would be a comfortable fish to beat the heat. The following is a little info, compliments of the FWC concerning the Warmouth Perch. Warmouth: Appearance: It has a stout, deep body similar to other panfish. A red eye and large mouth are conspicuous field marks. Three or four dark stripes radiating back from the eye across the cheek and gill cover like war paint confirm the identity. Habitat: Warmouths inhabit swamps, marshes, shallow lakes, slow-moving streams and canals with soft, muddy bottoms. They stay around aquatic vegetation, stumps and snags and under the banks of streams and ponds. They have more tolerance for muddy water than most species. Behavior: Warmouths are solitary nesters that prefer to nest adjacent to a submerged object. Nests are found over a wide range of water depths. They often spawn more than once a year usually between April and August. Crayfish, shrimp, insects and small fishes make up the bulk of their diet. Most feeding is done in the morning, as it appears to sleep at night. State Record: 2.44 lbs. Big Catch: 10 inches or 0.75 lbs. This fish is a real fighter They arent as big as Bluegill or Shellcrackers, but the meat is tasty. The bait of choice is live worms so swing by Tracys Point and well point you in the right direction. Good luck and good fishin! Some Things Fishy at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Fishing Report for week ending Sept. 11 By Donna and Steve Lind 3rd place was Gary Spencer with 4 fish for a total weight of 5.74lbs.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will host its Youth Hunting Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, north of Tallahassee. Its no coincidence that this date happens to be National Hunting and Fishing Day, making the event a great opportunity for the entire family to come out and learn about hunting and fishing. The FWC is partnering with Tall Timbers to put on this free, half-day event for interested kids of all ages and their parents. Advance registration is not necessary for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will get to shoot at targets with bows and arrows, shotguns, rifles and muzzleloading guns. Other activities include a hunting-dog demonstration. Those who have taken the online hunter safety course can complete the required field activities at the event by registering at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety. Also, participants are eligible for door prizes, including a youth hunt or a free week of summer camp in Ocala or at the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center (BTYCC), near Tallahassee. The BTYCC is part of the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network initiative to create youth centers that will provide opportunities for young people and families to participate in outdoor activities and share experiences that strengthen connections with and support for fish and wildlife conservation. The Sept. 24 Youth Hunting Field Day sponsors and volunteers include the Future of Hunting in Florida, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Talquin Portable Restrooms, Ducks Unlimited, Jefferson Long Rifles, Tallahassee Bowhunters Association, Horse Creek Traditional Archery Club, Quality Deer Management Association, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Safari Club International, the Florida Forest Service, Dog Pond Kennels and Hard Labor Creek Plantation. For more information on Youth Hunting Field Day, call 850-413-0084. For directions to Tall Timbers Research Station, go to www.talltimbers.org. 1st place was Dale Jackson with 5 fish for a total weight of 8.99lbs. Youth Hunting Field Day set for Sept. 24 Balloon releases take a toll on wildlife The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds event organizers and other Floridians about a law prohibiting the release of more than nine lighter-than-air balloons within a 24-hour period. While releasing balloons is often an idea of groups that wish to honor an event or lost loved one, the FWC encourages the public to choose more environmentally responsible actions for their events. Balloons released in Florida almost inevitably end up in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean. Wildlife, especially sea turtles, mistake balloons for food, and strings attached to balloons can entangle birds and other animals. The release into the atmosphere of large numbers of balloons inflated with lighter-thanair gases poses a danger and nuisance to the environment, particularly to wildlife and marine animals. Violators could incur $250 in fines according to Florida law. There are exceptions for scientific or meteorological balloons released by a government agency or under government contract, hot air balloons that are recovered after launching and balloons released indoors. The law also allows for the release of balloons that are biodegradable or photodegradable under FWC rules. Since 1989, the FWC has received only one such balloon design for review, and that balloon was not approved. Southwest Florida Water Management District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts on District land this fall and winter to help reduce the wild hog population. Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/Ho gHunt/. Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, or until they are sold out. The cost is $50 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the hunts will be held: Nov. 15 to17 Upper Hillsborough Preserve Alston Tract, Pasco County Dec. 6 to 8 and Jan. 24 to 26 McGregor Smith Scout Reservation, Citrus County Dec. 13 to 15 Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve Hampton Tract, Polk County Jan. 10 to 12 and Feb. 7 to 9 Edward W. Chance Reserve Coker Prairie Tract, Manatee County Jan. 17 to 19 Little Manatee River Southfork Tract, Manatee County Feb. 7 to 9 Conner Preserve, Conner Preserve, Pasco County The District-managed properties will be temporarily closed to the public during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. In addition to obtaining a permit online, maps and hunting rules of the areas where the hunts will take place are available on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/Ho gHunt/. This is the fourth consecutive year for the hunts. Last years hunts removed one hundred hogs from four different tracts of land throughout the District. District to hold series of hog hunts, permits will be available online

However, when searching the internet for advice or helpful information, be sure the sites you are searching are reputable and legitimate. This holds true for animal sanctuaries and rescue groups. Websites can be created to show playful and happy puppies and kittens in a picture perfect environment, but what you see may not be at all true. Sumter DART has been called to transport animals from many rescues and sanctuaries that were nothing like what their websites portrayed them to be. The conditions were horrific and the people charged with animal cruelty. Citizens are now learning about puppy mills and are choosing to not buy from pet stores that sell puppies. The animals sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, which are large breeding facilities where the animals are kept in filthy and deplorable conditions. Held in small cages their whole lives, they are bred every heat cycle. They receive minimal food and water, just enough to keep them alive to breed again, and are not given any veterinarian care for illnesses or injuries they sustain. Lost sales at pet stores have now given way for breeders to market their puppies and kittens online. The puppy mill breeders are now using the internet to sell their animals. Their websites do not tell you that they are puppy mills, but print false information and deceptive pictures. So what can you do? First and foremost, opt to adopt! Adopt your next best friend from a humane society or legitimate rescue organization. Adopting a pet will not only saves that animals life, but will make room for another animal to be rescued. How can you tell if the organization you are getting your pet from is legitimate? Any legitimate rescue organizations will NOT sell you an animal. They will have you fill out an adoption application that will be processed to assure the animal is going to a good home. If approved, an adoption fee is charged, which goes to help save more homeless animals. Legitimate organizations will have information on the pets personality, their health records, and the pet will be spayed or neutered. The only way to stop the cruelty of puppy mills is to stop buying animals. When there is no more market for their products they will stop producing. It is up to all of us to support legitimate rescue organizations and humane societies, and appreciate the life saving work they do. This beauty is Putt Putt. She is a long-haired tuxedo who is looking for her forever home. Putt Putt lives at the office and is always the first to say good morning, she enjoys her morning can of food, and a little visiting with the volunteers and then she is off to her perch to overlook the days happenings. She enjoys a good brushing which is needed daily. Putt has been declawed so she would have to be an inside cat, but she is litter trained and a very clean cat. To see Putt Putt or any of our other four legged friends visit our website at www.hsspca.org, call (352) 793-9117, or email us at info@hsspca.com.
